rb99: Is it that expensive ? Have seen $100million+ mentioned. Same price as that Costco place, which is just an overgrown shop.
I'm not used to dealing with those sized numbers. It may be pocket change to Microsoft, not to mention the brownie points with local government and industry.
CCL is mentioned, and they have existing DC facilities. https://concepts.co.nz/datacentre/ Perhaps a joint venture of some sort?
